Week of February 8th, 2016 | A Scavenger, A Princess, A Wizard... + Squad Goals

And we’re the five best friends that anyone could have, oh the five best friends…ok, I’ll stop singing and get on with it.

This week was all about being inspired by my last T-Shirt release, ‘Choose Your Adventure’  It was a combination of some of my favorite female leads in films past, present and future.  It has all the empowerment for little girls and adult girls everywhere, with all the geekiness they need in their life. It’s available now for your little ones, you must get them started early with this really cute onesie on my Redbubble shop. And while you’re watching your wee one dreaming of which female hero she can be when she grows up, start drinking a lot of coffee in the this mug, because she’s not gonna be napping long.

Now all that inspiration lead to five new designs this week. FIVE! Granted most of the artwork was all ready made last week, so that made this daring fete possible.  Most likely I won’t be releasing five new design in one week again…maybe…we’ll see.  Realizing there are so many fandoms out there and these are some of my top fav, I notice they aren’t everyone’s. So what happens when you have chosen your ultimate hero/female badass. Well you buy one of the individual shirts of course.

Here’s all five individual shirts available now on my Teepublic shop in a variety of styles and colors. You can get them all weekend long for only $14. It’s a great deal…I know. So which one will you choose?  You can go directly to them by clicking on your favorite below! 

Could you imagine if your squad consisted of the five women above…unstoppable, that’s all I have to say. 

Speaking of Squad.  I started on some sketching for my next round of designs.  Can you guess who these weapons belong to? And who else is excited about Suicide Squad? I know there’s a lot of mixed feelings, but I’m going with it. I’m a little excited about it, maybe a lot.

That’s it for this week! I hope everyone has a super amazing weekend! Make sure to follow me on Instagram to see all the sketch progress I’ll making next week on new designs. Until then…MTFBWY!

Week of January 18th, 2016 | Collection Completed + A Little Recap

This week I'm spending some time away from the studio. Everyone needs a little break now and then. Another recharge after the holidays. But I didn't want to leave this week without a post. So I brought along the laptop and I'm writing you from my hotel room right now. 

I've been wanting to do a recap for awhile, on my Star Wars Silhouette series from last year.  I just ended the collection the first week of this year, with "Wookiee Talk".  It's a pretty great collection and everyone seems to be loving these designs as much as I do. In fact last year the fantastic people over at Indieminded decided to do a little "Artist Spotlight" on me and these designs.

There's a variety of products to choose from in these designs below. Tees, stickers and phone cases are a just a few. 

All these designs are available now on my  Teepublic  shop and  Redbubble  shop.

All these designs are available now on my Teepublic shop and Redbubble shop.

Also new to my Redbubble shop is last week's design, "I Like That Wookiee".  You can now get more than just shirts. This design is also available as stickers, phone cases, tote bags and pencil pouches like these below.

As much as I hate to make this such a short post, I gotta go get some play time in before the weekend is over. I know you all understand.  Most importantly I just wanted to recap these great designs from last year and the new ones this year. The Silhouette Collection is now complete and I'll be moving on to nerdier things.  With all the great geek movies coming out this year, there's going to be a big variety in my shops focusing on my favorites of course. So keep following along and...MTFBWY.

Week of January 11th, 2016 | I Like That Wookiee + Inspiration Station

If you’ve been following me on Instagram, you’ve seen a few progress posts already about what I’ve been up to this week. A little sketching and a little new year clean up.

I feel like most of you, that the new year is like a reset button. It’s my Spring Cleaning, but it’s cold outside.  One major thing I wanted to accomplish in the big cleaning of 2016, was a revamp of my studio space. Here’s a before pic:

I know it’s not terrible, but with creatives we tend to be inspired by our surroundings. So even though this got me through a great year, I need to keep it fresh for the new one. It’s been going well, and I hope to post some after pics next week. Stay tuned!

Now let’s get to the new shirt release this week.  Of course it’s another Star Wars: The Force Awakens tee. This time a new character inspired me, a tiny new character. Maz Kanata. Maz is awesome!  She’s down to hang out with a bunch of smugglers, because she is one, and she’s crushing real hard on everyone’s favorite Wookiee. She’s not shy about it either. She’s pretty good at expressing how she feels, but not all people are. It’s cool, though. She has these goggles that help her see what you’re feeling. No playing games with this alien’s heart. #RelationshipGoals

I Like That Wookiee’ is now available on Teepublic for $14, but only for the next 72 hrs, so make sure you get yours before the weekend ends.  There’s a variety of colors and styles to choose from as well as phone cases and prints.

Before we call it a week, and start our amazing weekend, I wanted to give an update on last week’s design release. Wookiee Talk is now available on my Redbubble shop! Tons of items to pick from with this design, stickers and onesies are just a few to name. Go check it out this weekend. As always…May The Force Be With You.
